Mickey Thompson's House (Former)

This is the Bradbury home where auto racing legend Mickey Thompson and his wife Trudy were murdered early one morning in 1988 by two gunmen. Neither of the assassins were ever identified, though Thompson's former business partner was later arrested and convicted of the hit.
This home made worldwide news again in 2006 when current owner Yosef Maiwandi, owner of now-defunct San Gabriel Valley Transit Authority, was arrested and the house searched in connection with the mysterious crash of an illegally-imported $2 million Ferrari Enzo in Malibu, CA. Maiwandi's business associate, infamous Swedish mobster Stefan Eriksson, was later arrested for the crash and deported to Sweden for stealing a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and illegal gun possession, among multiple other charges.
The home is still in mostly-original condition and includes a separate 20-car garage, built by Thompson for his race cars.
